VMAs fashion tends to be eccentric and bold and this year's selection didn't disappoint. Never one to play it safe on the red carpet, host Doja Cat arrived in a corset top with purple draping. Sky-high red platform pumps completed her look.
Lopez surprised fans inside the arena at the start of the show, working it in a David Koma look.
Shawn Mendes was also one of the first to walk the carpet -- and he did so in style. The 23-year-old singer opted for an all-white ensemble.
Though Mendes and his girlfriend, Camila Cabello, walked the carpet separately, they made one fashionable pair. Cabello brought some color to the awards show in a stunning Alexis Mabille gown. "Love this lewk!" she wrote on Instagram.
Cabello was also a fan of Lil Nas X's look at the awards show. The 22-year-old artist posed in a lilac off-the-shoulder jumpsuit with a dramatic train.
Anitta opted for black and white in a curve hugging Miss Sohee gown.
And Olivia Rodrigo was a breath of fresh air in a pretty pink dress.
Billy Porter once again brought his fashion A-game in a shimmering suit.
